LOWELL, Mass. — Students at Lowell High School have missed three days of school this week after a gas leak forced them to evacuate.
The gas leak is the latest mechanical issue for the high school. This past winter, students and parents sent Boston 25 News video and phots of burst pipes and freezing temperatures inside classrooms.
So far this year, students have missed 14 days of school; ten for snow, one for heating issues and three for the gas leak.
Boston 25 News went to the superintendent's office and city manager's office for comment on building safety and their plan to make up these school days. Both declined to comment beyond a news release they sent out Thursday:
Parents say they are fed up.
